There’s a cornucopia of fresh food available during the summer; and a few simple steps can help keep you healthy while enjoying the fresh produce.  Susan Kendrick with the Oregon Department of Agriculture says last year's E-coli outbreak involving cantaloupe and strawberries have some people leery of the fresh produce.

But Kendrick says to just heed a simple precaution:  "Certainly there's the health benefit from eating fresh produce, so I wouldn't discourage people from eating fresh produce. But definitely wash it before you eat it, no matter what type of produce it is."  Kendrick says also cooking meats to proper temperature and keeping perishable foods cold by using an ice chest or cooler, and tossing out food that that has sat out for more than four hours can help make eating this summer safe and enjoyable.
